Fig. 11. Alternate measures of resilience: the proportion of the plane space of the coral/algae phase in the basin of attraction of the coral-dominated state (11A) and the minimum Euclidean distance between the coral-dominated equilibrium state and the boundary of its basin of attraction (11B). At a population of 500, there is no coral-dominated state. Instead, there is an algae-dominated state and a state characterized by stable limit cycles. In this case, the Euclidean distance is a measure from the stationary state of the stable limit cycle.
